An Interview with Ricky Smith
This week on Masterminds in Maintenance, we hear from Ricky Smith, CMRP.
Ricky Smith has a wealth of knowledge and years of experience in the maintenance and reliability industry and we were so thrilled to have him join us on our podcast. Ricky Smith started his maintenance journey in the US army, where he wanted to go to school to become a heavy equipment mechanic. He went on to work at a refinery and then Alumex as a technician and then as a maintenance engineer. He’s held a wide range of roles from maintenance supervisor, to maintenance manager, to maintenance company commander while in Iraq. Currently, Ricky Smith is a Maintenance and Reliability Best Practices Advisor at World Class Maintenance, where he is the Vice President.
Ricky argues that data integrity is critical to your reliability success. Without the proper categorization, hierarchy, and data structure you’re likely drowning in data without knowing what to do. Learn more about ISO 14224 and why it’s become the industry’s standard for how to capture data to drive better reliability decisions by listening to this week’s episode of Masterminds in Maintenance.
